Hyundai Sports Cafe Ten Year Run To Finish

TVNZ would like to announce that this year's season will be the final for the long running and successful Hyundai Sportscafe programme.

TVNZ said the decision was made after discussions with the producers of the show Leftfield Productions.

"Hyundai Sports Café broke new ground in New Zealand television. It has been a fantastic local show with an excellent record," said TVNZ Programming Head Annemarie Duff.

"This year has seen the highest ever ratings for the show, so in a Sportscafe sort of way it's the obvious time to bring down the final curtain, said Ric Salizzo.
"We have been doing the same four jokes for ten years now and it's good to finish while someone is still laughing at one of them."

"We plan to sit around together and come up with some new ideas so unfortunately our three regular viewers may not have seen the last of us in one guise or another."

"TVNZ is constantly evolving our schedule and we are looking forward to working with Ric Salizzo and Leftfield Productions on future projects that will be just as ground breaking and popular."

"We'd like to thank the Hyundai Sports Café team for the hard work they have put into delivering a fantastic show for TVNZ and the enjoyment they have given our viewers," said Annemarie Duff.
